Good afternoon Col Burroughs and all of my brothers and sisters here on VFV. When I first saw today’s topic, the poem by Joyce Kilmer came to mind. It is called Trees. I include that below. I also thought about how important tree is used in scripture. We are told about Jessie’s tree in the Bible. I have included a link to that for your consideration. Have a blessed day today and always.
